A Little Bit About Us:

We meet for Sermon Talk every Sunday at 10:00 am in the Dungeon and every 2nd and 4th Sunday 5:30-7:00 for fun, fellowship, and Bible study. We are a welcoming group that laughs a lot while also learning about ourselves and the impact we can make on our community. Email Becca Kreiner for more information at email@example.com

January 13: Busy bags re-stocking. (see below)
January 20: topic: STRESS!!!
Parent notes from Groove curriculum:
If you were to ask most teens if they were stressed you would quickly learn some of the pressures they face. Unfortunately, we will never know exactly how stressed our students are. On some level they cannot even intensify all the things that stress them. Developmentally our teens are managing a new skill as their brains are shifting from concrete to figurative thinking. This new change presents its own challenges. Life is less simple. Suddenly they no longer have to consider what they think, but can also consider what others think about what they think. This is hard, and stressful. Throw in some changing hormones, social media, extracurricular activities, and the pressure to perform academically, and suddenly we find a teen who is as exhausted and as stressed as a corporate CEO.
We will explore how Scripture can guide our responses to stress and shape our ability to address it head on with faith. Please pray for us as we gather this week.
February 10: Busy Bags re-stocking.
February 24: Tea with a Teen 12:00-1:00*
* No late meeting today as we will be participating in Tea with a Teen after church. Please be on the lookout for an email from Jenny Serrano for more info.
March 10: Busy bags re-stocking.
The Board of Faith Formation has a lot of very exciting things in the works to improve the church experience for our children and youth (as well as the rest of us!). As soon as I get the okay to share these items, stay tuned!
As a service to the church, the Sr. High Youth Group will be responsible for stocking the "busy bags" used to entertain children during the service. At our first meeting each month, we will quickly go through the bags and replenish those that have misplaced their contents. We will happily take donations from the congregation for busy bag goodies. These would be small quiet toys, crayons, small coloring books or tablets, etc. The Dollar Tree is a terrific resource for these items! If you feel driven to donate, please contact Becca Kreiner or Andrea Spacek.
Registration: Parents: please fill out the registration form to the right so the church has all the information we need on your children AND so we can take pictures of them to share with you!
Parents: Please fill out this registration form and get it back to Becca ASAP so that we have all the necessary information on your teens when they are participating in youth events.
